Apple takes $9m kick down under after bricking iPhones


OoooH That will teach them

OoooH, 9 Million, that will teach them! My bet is that the petty cash tin at Cupertino has more than that in it. Well done ACCC, widely referred to here as TitsOnaBull

MY GOD, IT'S FULL OF CARS: SpaceX parks a Tesla in orbit (just don't mention the barge)


Money where your mouth is

Now that is putting your money where your mouth is. Well done Mr Musk and all your hard working engineers who have walked the talk. Big hats off to the headline writer, have a pint !

To hack Australia and learn its secrets, buy second-hand furniture


Safe hands

So the largest 5 eyes country let decades of secret files leave the building on a dvd marked as "lady GaGa" and now another 5 eyes country sent 15 years of secret files to a second hand shop because they had lost the filing cabinet key. Truly the world is in safe hands.

GOLD! Always believe in your role. You've got the power to know you're indestructible...


Utter utter Bastard

You utter utter Bastard. I have now got that Bloody Spandau Ballet song stuck in my head.

Aww: Apple won't be HomePod for Christmas


So many crappy answers in search of a question

Maybe I am just a grumpy old git. But a lot of the current tech in this particular space seems to be a very crappy answer in search of a question none of us really asked. I mean I have been known to shout at the odd recalcitrant server, but I am not sure I am ready for them to start answering me back.

Fappening celeb nudes hacking outrage: Third scumbag cops to charge


Two types of stupid

There seems to be two types of stupid involved here. The low life's who steal and distribute private data and the idiots who take nude photos of themselves on internet connected devices and expect those images to remain private. A pox on both your houses.

VPN logs helped unmask alleged 'net stalker, say feds


Worth a look

This is not a bad place to start if you are feeling a tad insecure about your VPN service


If you could not be arsed reading the article at least ask your VPN service the following questions which the article is based on

" 1. Do you keep ANY logs which would allow you to match an IP-address and a time stamp to a user/users of your service? If so, what information do you hold and for how long?

2. What is the registered name of the company and under what jurisdiction(s) does it operate?

3. Do you use any external visitor tracking, email providers or support tools that hold information about your users/visitors?

4. In the event you receive a takedown notice (DMCA or other), how are these handled?

5. What steps are taken when a valid court order or subpoena requires your company to identify an active user of your service? Has this ever happened?

6. Is BitTorrent and other file-sharing traffic allowed (and treated equally to other traffic) on all servers? If not, why?

7. Which payment systems do you use and how are these linked to individual user accounts?

8. What is the most secure VPN connection and encryption algorithm you would recommend to your users?

9. How do you currently handle IPv6 connections and potential IPv6 leaks? Do you provide DNS leak protection and tools such as “kill switches” if a connection drops?

10. Do you offer a custom VPN application to your users? If so, for which platforms?

11. Do you have physical control over your VPN servers and network or are they hosted by/accessible to a third party? Do you use your own DNS servers?

12. What countries are your servers located in?"

Remember, Assume nothing, Believe nobody, Check everything.

Ten-year-old Windows Media Player hack is the new black, again


In its place are legitimate BluRay rips of War Dogs

That word, legitimate. I don't think it means what you think it does.

So long as dishonest counts like Tony Abbot employ dishonest counts like Heydon with our taxes, our cuntry is stuffed. Now it turns out he has an iphone LOL


Australia to block piracy sites if Big Content asks nicely in court


This will just accelerate the already growing trickle to VPN into a tsunami. Got to laugh at dot point 4 "fairly apportioning costs as between ISPs and rights holders" As if those %$#*s in Hollywood will pay a fair share of anything.

Telstra 'snot boxes' challenge Turnbull's FTTN plan


Even more scary than politicians talking out of their backside, is the issue of Asbestos in the pits. According to the Telstra fact sheet( http://www.telstra.com.au/uberprod/groups/webcontent/@corporate/@about/documents/document/uberstaging_241654.pdf ) The PMG box in your picture contains asbestos, which is a little more alarming than snot or dog cocks. Interesting to see what the cost of remediation will be.
